The Bucks edged out Michigan 42-39 to send the Wolverines home with heads low.

I have to say I was surprised that it was a shoot-out as opposed to a defensive game, but it ended up as close as I thought it would be. It didn't have to be though. I hesitate to give Coach Tressel advice, but Teddy Ginn dropped no less than three balls, and at least one of them would have kept a drive alive. I'd have him doing some extra work before the FIesta Bowl.

By the way, here is the play of the game:

Michigan came out in the second half and made it a seven point game. Ohio State needed to score, and my favorite Buckeye, Antonio Pittman, exploded through the middle and blazed a trail through the secondary, scoring practically untouched. There were some tense moments after that, but it was the second big touchdown run for the Buckeyes and it made Michigan respect the run the rest of the game.

Some folks are talking about a re-match on January, but I can't see that happening. As far as I'm concerned, Michigan had their chance and the winner of next week's USC-Notre Dame match-up should get the next shot.

By the way, is it me, or have their been an incredible number of huge match-ups this year? The Buckeyes have already played two #2 teams (Michigan and Texas), next week's USC-Notre Dame game is huge. LSU-Auburn and LSU-Florida were both huge this year. And I know I'm forgetting one.

Anyway, as far as I'm concerend, we saw the national championship tonight, so let's send the Wolverines home with a song:

We don't give a d*** about the whole state of Michigan
the whole state of Michigan
the whole state of Michigan
We don't give a d*** about the whole state of Michigan
We're from O-HI-O!
